Fly, Skate, Win


The Air Force’s new sports motto: Go Hurricanes?

Earlier this week, Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, N.J., announced it will award a sole-source, firm-fixed price contract to the NHL’s Carolina Hurricanes, stiffing the NHL’s other American teams.

The contract includes the following provisions:

–          Five minutes of advertising on the advertising boards, along with one PA announcement, at the Hurricanes’ home ice.

–          One table on the concourse

–          One autographed team stick

–          One 18-person suite

–          One conference room for an hour-long presentation

–          A logo on the team’s website.

No word on if the other services plan to support other NHL teams. I’d say some natural fits are: Navy – San Jose Sharks, Army – Columbus Blue Jackets, Marines – New Jersey Devil (Dogs), Coast Guard – New York Islanders. The USAF has to be a little jealous of the Winnipeg Jets though, with its logo adorned with a RCAF CF-18.
